Receiving monies from ex


My Ex sent ma a check from her new acct. But I am leery of cashing it due to her mental state. Is it community property still, or could she try the old ‘I never wrote it’ thing, that is what I think she would do.


Are you separated? Your question is a little confusing.

If you’re separated or divorced, and she wrote you a check from her personal account, and you cash it then the money is now yours. It would not be considered community property. Make a copy of the check before you cash it. If she says she didn’t write it…you’ll have the copy to say that she did.


not seperated or divorced, just not living together.the dss won’t let her home yet


You may cash the check.
